From the Document: "[W]e are pleased to submit the following report with our review of US foreign policy in the Americas to reduce the flow of illicit drugs and the damage associated with drug trafficking. Our recommendations provide a roadmap for cost-effective, evidence-based drug control policies that will address their fundamental objective: reducing the number of American lives lost to drug abuse. Drug trafficking is a complex, constantly evolving threat that requires a comprehensive but flexible approach. We believe our recommendations will enable the US government to implement a long-term, inter-agency strategy that can be adapted to the needs of our Latin American partners. It also provides for an evidence-based approach based on relevant indicators and periodic assessments."
